Linen Stitch Preview

Just wanted to share a peak at something I’m working on. A pincushion pattern for my blunt ended needles.
There is no shortage of pincushions in my sewing stash but when I have to weave the ends into a knitting project and I’m using a thick, blunt needle, like a tapestry needle I simply cannot seem to coax it into a regular pincushion of tightly woven fabric and end up storing it between the stitches in my lap blanket or sweater….where, of course, I always, without fail, loose the needle every time.
Hence, the linen stitch top to this design. Porous enough to insert thick needles easily, tight enough to hold them securely while you get up refill your wine glass or tea cup between loose ends! Full project instructions coming soon…
